ISLAMABAD - Nasir Iqbal stormed into the final of the $10,000 Atlanta Open 2014 Squash Championship, as he brushed aside Englishman Adam Murrills 3-0 in the semifinals played in Atlanta US on Sunday. Pakistan number 1 squash player Nasir Iqbal while talking to The Nation on Sunday from US said: “I started the match on a high note winning the first game 11-7. Adam Murrills tried to put up a brave fight in the second game but I managed to take the game 11-8. Third game started in same fashion. I was enjoying the situation. I played some powerful strokes down the line which forced Adam Murrills to commit number of errors. I took the third game 11-7 to set final date with top seed Cesar Salazar of Mexico. I need prayers of the nation to win back-to-back titles in US.”
